Who He Is

 I spent a large part of my life questioning whether God was really Who people said He Was.   An incorrect view of God killed my brother and removed the will to live from my life. 
Who Is God? 

Many people think they know Who God Is, but very few do.      

If God is anything like some of the people you and I have encountered, He isn't worth knowing. If God is anything like  some of the religions He isn't worth knowing. Why would you want to know a psychopath?


 Of yourself you cannot overcome the hurt in your life, otherwise you already would have.  Of yourself, you will never create  the unconditional love, trust, acceptance, etc you seek, otherwise you already would have.  Of yourself you will never bring about the purpose or dream that is part of who you are. If what you need, you cannot create you will never have what you need. For your life to have any meaning what you need must be available. It is not available from you, otherwise you would already have it. It is not available from the relationships that you have tried. It is not available from the food you have eaten. It is not available from the money you have earned. It is not available from the parent you had. It is not available from the drinks you have drunken. It is not available from the work you have tried.  It is available from He Who He Who creates all and everything you seek. He Who creates what you seek is known as God.    It is He Who desires you receive unconditional love, trust, acceptance etc, required for life to have any meaning. 
 

 Even though you may not consciously acknowledge the existence of God you have an unconscious perception of Who He  Is. The pain in your life you tend to think God caused. This incorrect perception has been caused and is causing hurt which is for many to painful to mention.   Of ourselves we do not have the power to create what you need. God Himself is the only One. If He can not or does not desire to restore you there is no point in you living. 

Of yourself you cannot know Who He Is, otherwise you already would. There is no point in your life unless God exists and has created a way for you to know and understand Him. This way is not through me or you (or anything you or me can do), it is through His Son Jesus Christ.  And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.  This is the true God, and eternal life. , "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me".   

The God Who allowed Someone to give Himself up for you Who He valued more than His eternal existence. The Someone Who valued a future with you more than His eternal existence. This Someone is the exact representation of God (Exactly The Same As God). This Someone is Jesus Christ, the One and only begotten Son of God. 

And having loved them He (Jesus Christ) loved them to the end. Jesus Christ is the exact representation of God (Who God Is Represented Exactly). He who has seen me (Jesus Christ) has seen the Father (God).  “Whoever believes in me (Jesus Christ) does not believe in me only, but in the One Who sent me.   

 If you  know me (Jesus Christ), you know my Father as well."  

 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; Bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do.
